snow on the back side of the precipitation this morning with the colder air moving in toward illinois. our temps big ranges. some areas are clear and calm like manassas at 41. we have a few spots in the lower 60s where we've got clouds and a little more of a breeze. we're down to 50 here in d.c. with 53 in annapolis. again upper 60s with more clouds this afternoon. 5:59. monika samtani, happy observed veterans day. >> that's right, observed veterans day today. because of that a lot of you are off work but if are planning to head around town, metro is on a saturday schedule. grosvenor to friendship hits is single tracking and east falls church to clarendon, buses replace replace trains. there are no hov restrictions and two-way traffic on the changeable roads, including canal road, clara barton parkway and rock creek parkway as well. let's show you what it looks like at the american legion bridge on the west side of town. looking good between 270 and 66. no issues across the bridge
6:01am
span here. now we'll go back over to the maps. 95 northbound no delays yet from woodbridge to spring field. another live look outside, this time taking a look at 66 inside the beltway. i'll be back with more coming up at 6:11. >> thank you, monika. there are new developments this morning on the resignation of c.i.a. director david petraeus. the retired general's biographer sent harassing e- mails and triggered an f.b.i. probe. >> members of congress want more information about the investigation. preeti arla is live on capitol hill with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there continues to be a lot of drama and a lot of questions surrounding general petraeus' resignation in light of that affair. we have learned more about the investigation into the situation and the woman who received the harassing e-mails. her name is jill kelle ye, a 37- year-old florida woman and she's the one who received the
6:02am
e-mails from petraeus' then girlfriend paula broadwell. she has asked for privacy. she and her family have been friends with the petraeuses for several years. broadwell appeared to view kelle ye as a romantic -- kelley as a romantic rival even though it appears that was not the case. as we're learning more details about exactly how this all unfolded, we're also learning about the investigation and members of the intelligence committee say they received no advanced warning that an investigation was even going o. they say that is a huge problem. >> this is mething that could have had an effect on national sciewrpt. i think we should -- national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it. >> it would have been very difficult to continue in his position if he had subordinates who may have engaged in similar activity. how would he deal with that. i know that was his thought process and at the end ever the
6:03am
day he did do the right -- of the day he did do the right thing. >> reporter: there will be meetings between the f.b.i. and intelligence committee leaders. again the focus on whether there were any national security implications here and also why those committee members were not told about this information they say they should have known about. we'll have to continue to see how this all unfolds and exactly what the investigation and those hearings this week will reveal. at 6:03, jessica doyle is here with another your money report. >> the cliff check. cliff notes this morning. the fiscal cliff. >> starting tomorrow the pressure is really, really on for congress. hard-core. the reon why lawmakers are returning from their lame-duck session and have just 16 scheduled work days to stop a potential recession next year. they meet tomorrow. the way things are right now on january 1, a $600 billion package of austerity measures kick in to cut the deficit.
6:04am
we're talking a series of tax hikes and spending cuts that could cripple the local and national economy. the president and a group of bipartisan congressional leaders will hold their first fiscal cliff meeting on friday. republicans and democrats of course taking to the sunday talk shows with their agendas but both sides did indicate there could be a growing bipartisan consensus that any solution must include a combination of spending cuts and revenue increases. in the other financial headache hanging over global economies, there is a step forward to tell you about in the greek debt crisis. greek lawmakers have approved the country's 2013 austerity budget. this is a key step in greece's efforts to persuade its internional creditors to unblock a rescue loan installment. without this the country will go bankrupt. it's going to cost you a little bit more to prepare the thanksgiving meal this year but the total cost would actually have been lower this year if it weren't for the bird. the american farm bureau of federation estimate it is will
6:05am
cost you $49.48 to feed ten people. the turkey, all the fixings, that's up only 28 cents over last year. the turkey alone was up 66 cents. i'm thinking about birds now. >> i need to do better shopping because we spent way more than $49. we're going to have 10 to 12 people. we'll probably send a couple hundred bucks. >> that's what i always do. this is the bare bones approach. that's what they look at. not all the fancy stuff. >> we thought it was going to be expensive because of the feed, the corn with the drought but now we know. >> not atrocious. >> leftovers. on this veterans day, we're talking about ways to honor our troops. >> when we come back, we'll be looking at a program that provides holiday meals to service members and their families during the season. i' enakg muivam foyes.enumier

howard here with your weather first. another very mild to warm day but not as pretty as the clouds will be thickening ahead of an approaching cold front. breezy this afternoon. highs mid- to upper 60s. showers move in tonight. full forecast in just a few minutes. on the southbound side of i- 270, right after route 85 coming down toward route 80, a vehicle struck a deer. it's sitting on the right shoulder attracting some attention but volumes are very
6:09am
light this morning as you can see. all lanes are open as you head toward 129. more on traffic coming up in a few minutes at 6:18. if you're looking for a way to honor our military men and women this veterans day, please consider donating to the turkeys for troops program. it will provide holiday meals for service members and their families this holiday season. it includes wounded warriors. jc hayward introduces us to one local woman who shares with us just how important the holidays are to her and her brother who was seriously wounded in afghanistan. >> it reminds me a lot of my brother and my dad and family in general. >> reporter: stephanie greets members of the military as a volunteer for the uso lounge at dulles international airport. while she helps the travelers relax, she is constantly reminded of her little brother and how she almost lost him. >> i had just gotten back from a trip when i was told and i think i didn't believe it at
6:10am
first because i didn't want to believe it. >> reporter: on october 24, 2009, her brother, army captain mark weiss was hit with an ied in afghanistan. paratroopers rescued him but his entire left side of his face and body was severely injured. >> they put him in a medical coma just to kind of allow his body to reduce the brain swelling. >> reporter: doctors told him he would remain in a wheelchair for as long as possible. >> accepting the doctors said he wasn't going to walk, he would push himself to walk. >> reporter: today he not only walks, he runs. the injury has brought wall's tight knit military family even closer. >> not that we didn't appreciate each other but you don't walk out the door without saying i love you one more time. >> reporter: when thanksgiving arrives, it is always a traditional time for wall's family. >> it's football and it's family and food.
6:11am
>> reporter: wall says being surrounded by family helped her brother heal faster. with the uso's turkeys for troops, she hopes other military members can experience the warmth. >> when my brother was at walter reed, the uso would come and bring thanksgiving meals to the troops that maybe couldn't leave the hospital wards to get down to the cafeteria. so i know it's extremely important. it's something that helps lift their spirits. >> reporter: i'm jc hayward, 9news now. >> if you would like to honor mark or other veterans, we encourage you to consider donating to the uso's turkey for troops program. a $50 donation will provide a holiday meal for a family of six and every dollar stays right here in our area. all you have to do is log on to our website wusa9.com and then click on the budgetton, the uso button on the home page. joining me now is cheryl laker hall with uso metro. is that sort of what you will receive as a basket? >> this is exactly what they'll receive as a basket. >> let's talk about some of the stuff in there.
6:12am
>> turkey. you have your yams over here. everybody loves those. canned corn, pumpkin pie filling, stuffing. >> what kind of need are we talking about this year? we know we still have the war in afghanistan and other efforts around the country. more troops are starting to come home and could probably use some help. is there significant need? >> we have 500,000 military men and women in this area. so we're supporting a lot of people. this year we'll be providing 1200 holiday baskets just like the ones you see here to families in need this holiday season. >> what kind of impact do these people have when they come home? we've done many stories on troops when they go overseas and serve our country, they have to take a pay cut and it can be difficult on their family to make ends meet. is the need really great as far as financial need? >> i think if we can all just step back for a moment and think about what it's like when your spouse is gone for a significant period of time, especially if you have a number of children, one spouse is
6:13am
taking on the whole responsibility for the family. i think that gets tough over time. >> do you need any volunteers as far as trying to help getting the baskets together? can you use some manpower too? >> we actually have them all packaged and we're ready to go because we've had a great outcrying of support for this program this year. >> thank you so much for joining us. great work. go to wusa9.com to help food service members. there's a uso button on our website. make sure you do that. the program will be very much improved because of that. remember every dollar you donate stays right here in the d.c. metro area. mr. howard bernstein, over to you. a beautiful morning out there. we have the bus stop forecast. the crescent moon in the eastern sky. when you see the pictures right now, it's just gorgeous. partly cloudy, cool, 40s and 50s. sunrise at 6:48. i'm just changing things around. i'll step out of the way. i urge you to check out this shot right now with the beautiful sky behind the capitol this morning. that is stunning.
6:14am
we're going to have a nice day at least to start. should be a pretty sunrise. 63 by noon. more clouds when we finish out the day at 66 after topping out at 68. i can't get over how pretty the city is at times when you get this time of day. we've got the clouds thickening to the west. showers well out to the west. they'll be moving in tonight. temperatures now in the low 40s in places like manassas is 41. reston is 43. but it's almost 10 degrees warm near ashburn at 51. look at bowie in college park and laurel. all in the low 40s this morning while andrews is at 50 and alexandria 44. why not. it's such a good picture. let's look at it again on our michael & son weather camera. partly cloudy skies. light winds. the humidity at 89%. but a strong cold front is coming. arctic air. look at this. bismarck 8. near zero in south central canada. the temps are moving toward the east and southeast. while we're a now and detroit 55, we're going to be
6:15am
struggling to get into the low 50s the next few days. there's the rain moving in toward ohio now, central ohio, columbus and cincinnati. you'll be seeing it shortly in 'not already. -- shortly if not already. it's a slow march east so it won't be getting here till sometime tonight. probably after midnight for most of us. ath earlier out to the west. here's the futurecast. we're starting out with generally clear to partly cloudy skies. even through lunch time partly sunny here. maybe a sprinkle south and west this afternoon. but still looking at partly to mostly cloudy to finish the day. then the showers come tonight, especially after the midnight hour. so between 11:00 and let's say 7:00, 8:00 tomorrow morning, best chance we're going to see rain but by 7:00 a.m., look at this. i-81, shenandoah valley, you're starting to clear out. these showers are going to kick east by lunch time. so will most of the clouds especially west of d.c. we'll see increasing sunshine in the afternoon but the cooler weather in here tomorrow and kind of chilly, too. actually not just tomorrow but for the rest of the week.
6:16am
you'll need the jackets. today 68, increasing clouds, beautiful sky right now. tonight we're dipping into the 40s and barely moving tomorrow, only 51. pretty brisk northerly wind. got a yellow alert for the rush hour tomorrow. that could be wet and could slow you down. dry on wednesday but chilly. 30s in the morning. low 50s in the afternoon. about the same for thursday. a little milder saturday for the terps game. then it could be wet and raw sunday. sunday for the skins game, i'm hoping the forecast guidance will change it. right now not looking so hot. the good news it's veterans day and ha that means -- and that means a lot of people have the day off. volume will be much lighter. the bad news is some of you still have to go to work. if you're using public transportation, metro is on a saturday schedule. the red line is single trafficking from grosvenor to friendship heights. buses are replacing trains from east falls church to clarendon. those are some things you want
6:17am
to remember. veterans holiday means no hov restrictions. you have all the lanes available for you, except route 50 in maryland. those hov restrictions are in place. two-way traffic on the changeable roads, including canal road, clara barton parkway and rock creek parkway. if you're planning to head northbound on 95, a live picture n. springfield it's so light, it's hard to believe it looks like this. to the 14th street bridge you are good to go. all the potomac and anacostia river crossings are incident free. back over to the maps. we'll show what you it looks like on the other side of town. bw parkway through cheverly in good shape. no problems on the northeast side of d.c. and north side of the beltway also in good shape. we'll take a live look. at route 1 in college park, all the way around into silver spring your lanes are open. we'll end with a live look at 66. also looking good inside the beltway if you're planning to head from manassas all the way to the roosevelt bridge. this is what it looks like.
6:18am
i'll be back with more traffic coming up at 6:25. >> it 16:17. coming up on 6:18. time for another look at the question of the day. 10% of americans will see this on their table on thanksgiving. is it a, cranberry sauce, b, a fruitcake, c, a restaurant bill. >> 10% is the key but i still feel weird about either any of these answers because i think it's more. one viewer says c, restaurant bill. going out for thanksgiving has become popular instead of the thanksgiving meal. if you try to make a reservation on thanksgiving, it's difficult soy think it's more than 10%. >> we did that one time. my husband was upset because they ran out of turkey so we're never doing that again. we'll have the correct answer in about 30 minutes. this week we're giving away tickets to "les miserables." all you have to do is answer the question of the day correctly to be entered into the sweepstakes and every day we'll randomly draw a name. that person will win four tickets to the play. "les miserables" will be at the
6:19am
national theater next month. stay with 9news. we'll be right back.

6:32am
republican strategist groverrer norquist how he thinks congress can avoid the fiscal crisis without raising taxes. >> it's so interesting about him and that pledge. more and more people are deciding not to sign it. that will be an interesting interview. >> thank you, charlie. questions continue to swirl this morning as charlie was just talking about, the extramarital affair that led to the resignation of c.i.a. director david petraeus. >> and the retired general and his biographer paula broadwell still continue to be quiet about details of their relationship. >> preeti arla is live on capitol hill with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there was plenty of shock here on capitol hill when general pa petraeus announced his resignation in light of that affair. we're learning more about the investigation that centered on harassing e. mails that were received by a florida woman. that woman is jill kelley. she's 37. she received the e-mails from
6:33am
petraeus' girlfriend broadwell. kel yi had the investigation investigate the threatening e- mails and that's what led the eventual resignation of petraeus. members of the intelligence committee say they're shocked by the news but also shocked they weren't told about the investigation sooner than they were. they received no advanced notice that that was going on. some are calling for a full investigation. others say if there are no national security implications, then we should move on. >> his resignation is a loss for the country but i understand why he had to resign. >> if there's no affect of the affair on national security, i think we need to move on. >> this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. there is a way to do it. >> reporter: on wednesday the f.b.i. meets with the intelligence
6:34am
committee leaders. again, the focus there on national security implications, access to information as well as why the committee members were not told that this investigation was going on, information they say they should have had access to. there's also as the investigation continues focus on the legacy of petraeus. obviously he's a very high profile individual, one of the best known generals of his generation. we'll have to continue to see how this continues to play out and again what those meetings here on capitol hill will reveal later this week. back to you. >> thank you live on capitol hill this morning. secretary of homeland security janet napolitano visited new york city on sunday and toured staten island. she told state and local officials her department and fema are committed to helping everyone in the region who are impacted by super storm sandy. >> the number one issue as we move forward is the housing. now finally identifying those
6:35am
houses susceptible to quick repair and then helping people get those quick repairs so they can get back in and begin the cleanout process and the like. >> staten island was particularly hard hit by the huge storm. the man suspected in rape cases alog the east coast says he doesn't know -- along the east coast says he doesn't know why he couldn't stop attacking women for nearly two decades. his unusual pretrial confessions offer the first real picture of the man who eluded police for decades and he made these confessions over the phone from his jail cell to washington reporter josh white. at one point he says he needs help with this problem, i don't think i'm crazy but something is wrong with me. josh, thank you for being with us. first, how did you convince aaron thomas to even talk with you? >> initially i wrote him a letter when he was up in connecticut and when he was moved to virginia, i wrote him another series of letters and began conversations with his
6:36am
family. ultimately i was able to get him to give me a call and it started from there. we spoke many, many times. >> how many hours was the conversation? >> it's hard to say exactly but it was dozens of hours. it was many, many phone calls over several months. >> at one point in the interview he said i feel like an animal. he tells you he can't even remember the faces of some of his victims. >> from our conversations, the way that he described it is these things just happened. he couldn't describe exactly why or what led up to them but he would get a feeling. wee go out on to the street. he would see someone and then an attack would occur. he described every one of the victims as an object. he didn't really understand why it was happening or really the damage that he was doing as it was happening. >> what we need to understand is brutal in his commission of crimes, but he is the son of a police lieutenant. his mother was a working woman. seemingly a normal family. how did he go from that existence to being this brutal
6:37am
rapist? >> i think it's a very complex issue. for him it was a combination of very difficult childhood. he said he was very harshly disciplined by his father. he had a very hard time growing up with his father. and started to get into trouble. dehave some emotional problems. he spent some time in a psychiatric fate and went to a -- facility and went to a school where he was getting help. after being kicked out of his home, he had a lot of trouble on the streets. >> what did you think of him in the end? >> he's a very complex person. i think like any person out there he's not all just the east coast rapist. he is a person with a background and a history and a life. he is dangerous and he admits that and he talks about that but i think at the root of it, he's trying to understand why it is that this all happened and why he got to the place that he ended up. >> this conversation helps us understand a little bit what was going on in his mind and you can read it, josh white's
6:38am
article in the "washington post." josh, thank you for being here with us. >> you're very welcome. at arlington national cemetery, president obama paid tribute to the nation's service members on veterans day. the president says the wreath he laid at the tomb of the unknown is intended to remember every service member who was ever worn our nation's uniform. he urged americans to welcome back soldiers who are coming home now. the president also noted this is the first veterans day in a decade with no american troops fighting in iraq. this is what the veterans day parade looked like in new york city this weekend. thousands lined the trees of manhattan for the parade cheering and waving flags. volunteers also collected winter coats for those in need nearly two weeks after super storm sandy hit the area. a reminder today the federal government is closed and there's no mail delivery except for express mail. we had a warm weekend. looks like a cold front is going to change things in the
6:39am
very near future. howard will have more on your weather first right after this.
